You will need one or two yards of white fabric such as vinyl or faux suede and a permanent marker or fabric paint.

You will also need access to a digital projector in order to enlarge an image of the hide

Find an image of a zebra hide taken straight on. Using a digital projector, project the image onto your fabric and trace the outline of the hide and the stripes with washable pen or marker.

Step 2: Step 2

Color in the zebra stripes with permanent marker or fabric paint. Allow marker to dry completely before cutting out the hide.

Step 3:

Your zebra "hide" is finished.
